Facing Fears!!



Anyone remember me telling you my kids have a fear of anything in a costume?   I mean a real fear with shaking, crying, and screaming involved? We go out of our way all the time to avoid anything in a costume.   I have two kids immediately hiding behind me if there is any costumed person aproaching in a parade.  We even almost missed a friends birthday party because my daughter was so afraid of Chuck E at Chuck E Cheese but I convinced her to go but she left the area when Chuck E came out.  

Last week we went to our local fire station for fire safety awareness night and at the beginning of the night she was her normal self and avoided the Sparky the fire dog.   Then as we were waiting in line and she was kind of hiding behind me when Sparky approached but as she watched her friend interact with him she all of a sudden burst forth with a new trust and no fear attitude and hugged Sparky!   Quite literally I paused with my mouth hanging open unable to move as I processed what I was watching!  I did make my daughter hug again so I could snap a picture to remind me of this awesome day where BOLDNESS and TRUST were displayed!   Now to get my son on that same level...it took my daughter till she was 7 and my son is 3 so we shall wait and see.  

What are your kids afraid of?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
